What's new for v6.08.00RC2

PCGen v6.08.00RC2 is released as a RELEASE CANDIDATE from our development branch. This is the culmination release that we believe will be the next production release. This is a Stable release. Please give it a shot and let us know how it works for you. Some notable changes in the 6.08.00RC1 release are listed below.

Notable Changes


Java 11 aka Java 55 aka 18.09 or 18.10.

PCGEN 6.08.00RC2 is not compatible with Java 10 (or earlier) and it is NOT SUPPORTED. To get the latest version of Java, go to AdoptOpenJDK. PCGen has been tested with OpenJDK and AdoptOpenJDK Java 11 (including the JRE).

Be aware that due to Oracle Licensing, and lack of availability we are recommending OpenJDK alternative. AdoptOpenJDK also have JREs (Normal Java) for the end users that is not installed and may take an extra couple of steps to make work. If this is not something you want to worry about, then please use the WINDOWS INSTALLER version of PCGen, as this comes with embedded JREs for both x86 and x64 Windows OS's.

How to "Install" the real JDK 11 on Linux Ubuntu - https://dzone.com/…/installing-openjdk-11-on-ubuntu-1804-fo… - SIDE NOTE: Ubuntu made a conscious move to actually leave Java at 10. The work around is to use AdoptOpenJDK 11.
